Avatar f tn hi, my grandmother just had a mild a stroke, she is 75 years old and had a bypass operation about 15 to18 years ago. her condition worsens every single day, like first she only has weakness of her left arm muscles, but now, just after 2 weeks she cannot stand already, and have been complaining pains in different parts of the body....what i know about mild stroke is that it has a very good prognosis, then why is it that with the case of my grandmother, it seems to be progressing?

Avatar m tn I had a mild stroke in the mid brain near the pons a year ago. Recently I had an extensive MRI/MRA done with contrast. The findings show a mild irregularity of the basilar artery. Also the left vertebral artery is hypoplastic. Both M1 segments are slightly extended throughout their course. I currently take 75mg of Plavix daily. What is the meaning of this, the treatment and prognosis?
Avatar n tn My mother, a healthy 61-year old, was admitted to ER after a mild stroke at her water aerobics class. Her condition deteriorated quickly in the ER as the stroke was hemmhoragic. It took hours to flush the Coumadin she had been taking for a thrombosis 2 years earlier.

Avatar n tn She apparently had a mild stroke recently as evidenced by her slurring of speech and some lack of facial muscle control on the left side. In the past she has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and she is currently taking 5mg vasotec and .125 digoxin. We don't feel that she would survive an operation. Are there any options? Is an operation advisable? What would be the prognosis without an operation?
Avatar n tn My Mom, who is 70, had a massive stroke 8 weeks ago. The tests did not disclose where the clot was, only that she did not have bleeding on the brain.She developed stomach bleeding 1.5 weeks after stroke (due to meds)so that had to be tended to. She did not start rehab until 4 weeks after her stroke due to having to be stablilized medically. She cannot move her right arm or leg and the therapist said there is no return for either in rehab. She also has aphasia.

Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago I had a mild stroke that did not affect any of my gross motor skills. I lost some functionality in my left hand, but now apparently have full use of the hand, but numbness at the end of 1 finger. 90% of the functionality of the muscles on the left side of my face has been restored. I speak very clearly and can modulate my tone effectively as long as I am not tire. Excellent recovery except for dealing with fatigue.
Avatar n tn This friend who is a 74-years old man had stroke just recently and now hospitalised. He has left-sided hemiparesis with right facial nerve paralysis and aphasia. He has been in the hospital for 2 days with glasgow coma scale of 9/15. He is hypertensive and diabetic for 10 years. His family members are wondering what are the chances that he can still survive. I am wondering what are the chances of survival for him and if he does, is it still good that he carry out physiotherapy?

Avatar f tn i am looking for people that had a massive stroke with a not so good prognosis. Also, i did have one neurologist tell me that he wold hold onto hope if this were his mother, despite all other poor prognosis. Do you think this is a good sign?

Avatar m tn What is her prognosis? Will she come home from the hosptial? We love my grandmother so much; my family is pretty big and not really medically-inclined to handle all of this. I just don't want to waste anymore time talking about defibrilators, trying to get another Cardiologist's opinion, etc if it's futile. I just want my grandmom to be comfortable. Can anyone help?
Avatar m tn Hi, its difficult to tell the exact prognosis. As the post stroke swelling subsides she may recover function. But now all depends on if her vitals are stable or not. As she is improving and if the "stroke" is stabilized, and there is no further bleeding or clotting I would remain optimistic. Regards.
Avatar n tn The though of a professional prognosis frightens me! I can give you an unprofessional prognosis, however. My significant other is punching me in the head (I often think of posting in the abusive relationships forum) and telling me to make sure I tell whoever you are posting to: "Don't listen to caregiver222!". All that being said, my opinion is, the prognosis depends upon one factor (1) Is the condition stabilized. Sometimes this is easy to do. Sometimes not that easy.
Avatar n tn if she had transient symptoms, she may have had a TIA or transient ischemic attack. this is a warning sign of stroke and needs to be treated as such. she should see a neurologist or a primary doctor as soon as possible and look for the cause. she may need a brain CT or MRI, a heart echo, blood work and dopplers. She should do it as soon as possible.
Avatar n tn 46 yr old healthy female. 4-21-97 Had frontal right brain mild stroke due to dissecting carotid aneurysm. From day one all questions and symptoms have been responded to by doctor with "that shouldn't be happening" or "we don't know anything...there's nothing we can do." Head feels weird. can't tolerate excitement, esp. extreme visual or audio stimulation. Slight left side weakness. Always fatigued.
Avatar f tn In other strokes only partial paralysis may be involved, which may disappear. So, prognosis will depend on the type of stroke and the status of other conditions, like the present stage of lung cancer and the therapy given. And seizures need to be controlled with antiepileptic medications. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Avatar f tn I was rather concerned that I may have suffered a mild stroke. Thankfully not. Thank you for your time and response. Kind regards.
